My boyfriend and I stayed in this MV Guest Cottage during the last week of August 2014 and could not have asked for a more ideal vacation. It is the perfect spot for a relaxing, authentic Martha’s Vineyard get-away. The location could not be better -2 miles to beautiful Katama South Beach and 1 mile to the downtown area of Edgartown with lots of cute boutiques and restaurants. The MV bus stops on Katama Road, just steps from the private road this cottage is located on and is an easy and quick ride into Edgartown or over to Oaks Bluff. If you’re active, the house location is wonderful for running the various loops around Katama and Edgartown and biking the island is also great.
The guest cottage is well appointed and it definitely shows that the owners take great pride in up-keeping the home as everything is spotless and the décor is super beachy cute! There is a full kitchen including everything you need to whip up snacks, beach picnics and seafood dinners. The back patio is a magical place to unwind after a day at the beach or sightseeing. We thoroughly enjoyed grilling fresh seafood and farm stand corn on the gas grill, relaxing with some wine and watching the sky fill with stars. The guest cottage is private and secluded from the main house so that you feel that you’re very separated from the main house and its’ guests. The cottage offers all that you need to feel like it’s your home away from home –good size bedroom, ample closet space, living room and separate dining area and a washer/dryer which is fabulous to have on a beach vacation! The bath and beach towels are also great quality. And, the outdoor shower is fantastic!
We’d highly recommend this beach cottage. It definitely helped in creating a magical vacation for us and we’ll return next year for sure!
